  6. 6. Overview of SSA Insurance Industry  Average world insurance penetration ratio at 2.9%.  African insurance penetration ratio excluding S. Africa <2.5%.  Namibia’s insurance industry benefits from the presence of large S. African companies.  KPMG reported that African countries where the insurance penetration rate is above the average were:-  Namibia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mauritius and Morocco.
  7. 7. Overview of SSA Insurance Industry  KPMG reported that African countries where the insurance penetration rate is above the average were:-  Namibia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mauritius and Morocco,  All these countries have – or used to have in the case of Zimbabwe – well-developed financial markets.  Kenya and Zimbabwe, in particular, perform very well, with insurance penetration rates of above 3% despite very low GDP per capita.  Most Africans are still too poor to afford insurance.  Growth prospects are however substantial due to:-  rising incomes,  increased participation by foreign companies, and  more innovative insurance products.
  8. 8. Zimbabwe Insurance Industry  Relatively developed industry represented in all forms of insurance:  General, Life, Employee Benefits, Medical & Funeral.  10 Life Offices dominated by First Mutual Life & Old Mutual 2 Life Re-assurers.  29 Short term insurers & 9 Active Short term reinsurers.  30 Brokers dominated by Minerva (formerly Aon) & Marsh.  Zimbabwe Insurance penetration at 3.65%.  Below the 6% penetration rate recorded a decade ago.  Zimbabwe insurance industry growing slightly faster than GDP.  Catch-up potential for insurance clearly visible leading to expected high insurance premium growth in the medium term.

  11. 11. Overview of First Mutual Holdings Limited  Second largest insurance group in the country excluding funeral assurance  Public company listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange  Major shareholders are:  National Social Security Authority  Pension Funds  Nominees & Individuals
  12. 12. Overview of First Mutual Holdings Business Model  360o Insurance coverage.  Integration of the 3 strategic pillars.  Micro-insurance for low income and unbanked sector.  Smoothen consumption by customers as they walk through the journey of life. Risk Management Direct Insurance (Life & General) Reinsurance (Life & General) Health Insurance Funeral Assurance Wealth Management Unit Trusts/Mutual Funds Private Asset Portfolios Wealth Creation Pension Contributions Voluntary Savings Low Cost Housing
  13. 13. Overview of First Mutual Holdings  Delivery Channels:  First Mutual Life (Employee Benefits, Group Life Assurance & Funeral Assurance)  FMRE Property & Casualty (Reinsurance)  TristarInsurance (Short term insurance)  First Mutual Healthcare (Health Insurance)  Pearl Properties (Properties Development & Management)  Asset Management (FML Asset Management Company)
  14. 14. Overview of First Mutual Holdings  Nature of target market  Mass market:  Micro insurance products with low sums assured & premiums Micro Savings products (unit trusts).  Informal sector penetration.  Distribution costs managed via e-channels delivery of products and payment solutions.  Develop products that resonate with culture aspirations and lifelong connectivity.  High net-worth clients.  Corporate Clients across entire product portfolio.  Customised product offering : a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach will no longer suffice.
  15. 15. Weaknesses facing the business and industry  Lack of Confidence (Fear Of Z$ Return).  Weakening Premiums (due to company closures & arrears).  Rate undercutting.  Shallow financial markets affecting Capital Raising for optimal capitalisation of general insurance companies.  Underdeveloped life insurance outside of S. Africa.  Decimation of middle class.  Falling Insurance density.  Inadequate (mortality) data complicates risk pricing.  Fragmented market limits risk pools & economies of scale benefits.  Frequent uneven weather patterns limit product development.
  16. 16. Prospects for the industry & First Mutual  Low penetration ratio presents growth opportunity.  Emergence of the middle class (commonly known as black diamonds) over time.  Insurance companies traditionally target only the richest 5% of the adult population, with most poor people having no insurance.  Scope for growth in low income group using low value premiums and high volumes.  Lower & Middle class to be primary drivers of pensions and life insurance segments.
  17. 17. Prospects for the industry & First Mutual  Technical & Equity partners can boost balance sheet & capacity to write more business.  IPEC expects a marked increase from 3% to double digit penetration on back of innovative solutions.  Increased co-operation between insurers and banks via cross- selling are expected to encourage growth.  Informal sector products and services.  Adoption of sound economic policies to stimulate economic recovery.  Re-industrialisation & economic transformation to create more formal jobs.
  18. 18. Prospects for the industry & First Mutual  Leveraging on technologies to drive penetration ratios  Riding on e-channels to lower costs of revenue collection (premium payments) and claims pay-outs.  According to the York Times, writing tiny policies is only feasible if the process of signing people up, verifying claims and making pay-outs is nearly free.  e-channels can make it sufficiently cheap for Africa & Zimbabwe.  Lesotho has EcoSure, Zim has EcoFarmer & e-FML, Kenya has Kilima Salama (certainly the most robust of all e-channels).
  19. 19. Prospects for the industry & First Mutual  Leveraging on technologies to drive penetration ratios …  Business Monitor International (BMI) noted that Kenyan companies seem to be more innovative than those in other African countries.  Kenyans can pay premiums via their mobile phones through platforms like M-PESA and Airtel Money.  Zimbabwe is driving towards the same ICT leverage over Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).  Technical partnerships with MNOs key for rapid implementation.
  20. 20. Way forward for Industry  Re-designing existing products to make them simpler and creating relevant, innovative new ones;  Customer education on the importance and necessity of insurance cover/ savings accumulation;  A more educated consumer base will demand services and products that serve its needs;  Using social media and technology to reach the untapped lower end of the market;  Promoting the image of insurers (currently, there is a lack of trust in insurers);  Improving the functioning of member companies; and  Improved regulatory oversight to curb against rate undercutting and other such practices that destabilises the sector.
  21. 21. Way forward for Industry  Products for low income earners & promoting micro-insurance and or micro-finance.  We believe that :-  there is substantial scope for future growth,  there are profitable opportunities for those willing to take on some risks and are innovative enough,  success inherently will depend on ability to design new and relevant products,  as the economy recovers so will GDP per capita and insurance density,  Now is the time to go into the Zimbabwean Insurance market.
  22. 22. What is First Mutual Holdings looking for?  Technical partnerships for expertise in underwriting specialist risks,  Technical partnerships for e-delivery channels to lower marketing & distribution costs especially on micro insurance/savings,  Equity partnerships for balance sheet capacitation (JVs, and or private placements),  We are on the ground; let us be your partner for entering Zimbabwe insurance market.
